I always dream that I could live longer to learn a lot of things that appears taboo for a woman to learn according to some people. Although, a lot of thins had changed from where I was younger because a lot of women are now studying fields that were predominantly for men. I always had this idea that the mind can learn anything regardless of the sex and I still believe that. I possess several skills that I can use for myself but also for the community. For example, I can speak more than one languages. Language allows me to interact with people from countries that I never visited. The connection with these people increase my knowledge in a lot of things that I would probably never get access to if I was unable to interact with those people. I also use language to assist people who are looking for services in my community. I also like to help people find resources because it is not easy for everybody to know everything in the community. My experience had revealed me that not every one knows how to access the resources that are available without the assistance of others. Being able to guide someone in my community is one of the most important things I could do, especially when someone is in need.
When I am interacting with people in my community, I feel safe for the most part. From what I understand, the street at night time is definitely not too safe for a woman. I try to use my wisdom to know when and where to display certain behaviors because I try not to offend people who might not share similar idea. I use the internet a lot when I need information and sometime I will ask someone to share ideas with me. Some people are reliable and willing to help and will welcome any opportunity to help. Some people also are very kind and will do everything to assist me.
